Kate Middleton and her sister Pippa love Issa wrap dresses. Photos by Getty Images and WENN.This weekend Pippa Middleton attended her friend Camilla Hook's wedding in a dress that looked extremely familiar. The knee-length silk jersey wrap dress is, in fact, the same Issa
frock her sister Catherine wore for her royal engagement announcement back in November 2010.
We scoured the internet for the Issa Forever dress, and realized it has been renamed. Net-a-porter.com is selling a Royal Engagement silk-jersey dress for $555 in poppy red. It is currently sold out in all sizes except size 8. MyTheresa.com is selling the dress in pomegranate (we believe that's the color Pippa wore) for $536. It's currently available in sizes 6 and 8, but all other sizes have a waiting list.
The Issa wrap dress is a universally flattering style the accentuates curves and a narrow waist. Both Duchess Catherine and Pippa accessorized with basic black pumps. They really are style sisters!

Talackova was much taller than the other pageant competitors. Photo by REUTERS/Mark BlinchBack in March, Talackova was in the finals of the Miss Vancouver competition when pageant officials kicked her out claiming she lied about her natural-born gender on her application.
